Apple finally blocks DigiNotar certificates after a week

Apple finally released an update to block DigiNotar digital certificates, more than a week after these certificates were known, behind Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Adobe. A possible man-in-the-middle (MITM) attacks against users can be launched, compromising security and privacy. The people affected were primarily located in Iran.

Apple was silent on the issue until now, prompting criticism from an analyst earlier this week.
